Clipper City - Daytime Sail

Welcome aboard the Clipper City for a delightful daytime sail around New York City. Set sail and unwind as you soak in the beauty of the city skyline and iconic landmarks from the water. With plenty of space to relax and enjoy the scenery, our daytime sail on the Clipper City offers a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the city streets.

Originally designed for hauling lumber, the Clipper City has a sturdy, big-ship feel that lifts you high off the water. Six crew members will be hauling on the sails, charging around and getting you involved. Rather sit back and enjoy? You can do that, too.

With a length of 158 feet and masts rising 120 feet, she can comfortably sail 149 people, the most of any passenger sailboat in the United States. You will look up and see sails that are bigger than your house. Our masts reaching towards the sky, we just fit under Brooklyn Bridge by a few meters when the tide is just low enough! This large sailboat has waist-high railings and provides a big, open deck (100 feet x 30 feet) with benches, hatches and a raised quarter deck where the captain steers. During your journey, we’ll fly 5,000 feet of sail.

Book your daytime sail on the Clipper City with City Sightseeing NY today and treat yourself to a memorable voyage on the waters of the Big Apple!
